A/N: So this is just something I wrote in a moment of boredness. It will be a two shot only if y'all want it too. Anywho, please read and review.
oh and thx to my two musketeers who helped me w this.
Disclaimer: Don't own PLL.
Aria cursed her short legs as she raced through the airport. Thanks to her dysfunctional alarm clock and roommate, she hadn't woken up on time. The previous night, Aria had asked her friend and roommate, Sarah to wake her up if for whatever reason, her alarm clock didn't. They both had failed.
Now, due to that, her time was running short to catch her flight. She had to make it. No; she needed to make it.
"Fuck." She murmured as she realized there was no way she would.
Finally after making her way through the long line of security, Aria headed towards her gate. Spotting the Alaska Airlines customer service desk, she pushed her way through the crowd.
"Excuse me." She spoke in her fake sweet voice. "I just missed my flight, and i'm in a hurry, and I really need to be in Philadelphia as soon as possible, so please, can you get me on the next flight?"
The man groaned as he scrolled through the computer screen in front of him.
"Sorry, the next flight is in an hour, but it's completely booked."
He continued scrolling.
"Next flight after that is" His voice trailed off as he continued scrolling, Aria tapped her foot impatiently as she waited. "Today at 10:00am, landing you in Philly at about 7:30 "
That's just fucking great.
"Are you sure?" Aria asked, clutching the counter tightly. "I really can't be late to this event. Can't you double check or something? Make sure of this? I need the earliest available."
The man sighed heavily, rolling his eyes in annoyance.
"I'm sorry, miss. There's nothing I can do besides putting you on that 10:00 o'clock flight."
Well, fuck you.
She sighed heavily, "That's fine."
After putting her into the system, and her mumbling a quick thanks, she made her way over to one of the seats.
Rubbing her temples, she shut her eyes as she tried to calm herself down.
Spencer was going to kill her.
Being the only one out of her three best friends, that had left Pennsylvania for college, she'd promised she'd arrive at 4:00pm Pennsylvania time, giving her more than enough time to get ready. And now she was more than likely to get there at least three hours later. And late to the Ceremony.And in jeans, sneakers, and a sweatshirt.
The graduation ceremony was starting in just a few hours, right at eight, and here she was, still in California. Glancing at her watch, she noticed it was barely 7:00am, she'd have to wait four more hours before boarding the plane.
She pulled out her phone, her thumb dancing around the screen of her Iphone, debating whether to press her thumb down onto Spencer's name.
Calling her would end up in her yelling, but so would not calling.
Aria sighed as she dialed her number, bringing her phone up to her ear. It was just past 10 in Philly, meaning Spencer would probably be awake by now, but she really hoped she wouldn't answer.
Biting her lip nervously, she waited as she heard the agonizing rings.
"Aria?" Spencer's voice came after the fifth ring.
"Aren't you supposed to be on a plance right now?" She questioned.
"About that." That her voice trailed before she heard Spencer sigh.
"Not again." She whined. "What is it with you and always missing your flights?"
"I'm so sorry." She apologized. "I promise I'll be there. A few minutes late, maybe, but I'll be there. I promise."
Spencer sighed once again.
"I'll see you soon, Ok?"
"Yeah, yeah." Spencer replied. "Have a safe flight."
That when better than she expected.
Pulling out her headphones, she shoved them into her ears, hoping that the music coming from them, would distract her from all this chaos. Thankfully, they did.
She shut her eyes, letting the music relax her.
An hour soon flew by, and the last of the passengers were called for the eight o'clock flight.
Damn them. Damn them all.
It should be her on that flight. Not all those other passengers. They didn't have a graduation to get to. She did. Her best friend's graduation to be exact.
Why was the world always against her? This had happened to her back when Mike had graduated High School as well.
She sent a mouthful of curse words towards the now flying airplane as she watched it slowly disappear.
Just as she was about to put her headphones back in, she heard a voice near the customer service desk.
"Excuse me, sir, I just missed my flight." A male voice spoke.
Loser. Aria thought.
She was about to laugh at him for also missing his flight, but then a thought hit her. She could've gone on that flight. That asshole ruined it for her. There was an empty seat on that fucking plane. An empty seat she could be sitting in.
Rolling her eyes, she skipped to the next song on her playlist, and shut her eyes again. Hoping to get some rest before her flight.
Minutes later, she felt someone tap her shoulder. Huffing in annoyance, she pulled out her left headphone.
"Yes?" She snapped.
Her eyes widened and nearly choked on her words when she met those mesmerizing blue eyes in front of her.
"Miss?" He asked.
His voice made her snap back into reality. She blushed, realizing she'd been staring more than she intended too.
"What?" She asked.
"I asked if it was fine if I sat here." He said pointing to the chair next to her.
"Um, yeah it's fine." She replied carelessly.
"Thanks." He smiled.
Oh god, that smile.
Setting his bag down on the floor, he sat down beside her, accidentally brushing his shoulder against hers in the process.
Her entire body tingled at the simple touch, making her stomach fill with butterflies with just that simple contact.
"So i'm Ez-" He tried to start a conversation, but Aria shoved her headphones back in as she pulled out her book from her purse.
She was not in the mood to talk to anybody, no matter how beautiful this man was and no matter how tingly and mooshy he made her feel.
Noticing he was engrossed in a novel as well, she'd look over occasionally just to admire his beauty. He was perfection if Aria were to admit. But perfection meant they were jerks. Just like her last boyfriend had been. So this guy was probably a jerk as well.
Minutes later, she noticed him staring at her. Was he trying to talk to her? Did he not understand the concept of headphones? They usually mean 'Don't fucking talk to me'.
Clearly annoyed, she pulled them out of her ears and looked at him.
"Yes?" She asked in annoyance.
"What are you reading there?" He asked, his voice deep and sexy.
Aria rolled her eyes. "None of your business."
He was obviously hurt by the harshness in her voice when he was only trying to be friendly.
"I'm sorry." He apologized, before his eyes returned to his book.
Aria instantly regretted being so rude.
She set her novel down as she turned to him
"No, I'm sorry. I'm just having a bad day."
"I understand." He mumbled, still not looking up at her.
Great. Now he thought she was a bitch.
She smiled, still looking at him.
"I'm Aria." She introduced herself.
He looked up, returning the smile.
There was a short silence between them.
"I really am sorry about earlier, I missed my flight, and it's my best friend's graduation tonight. So im just irritated at everything today."
"It's fine.." He smiled. "I understand. I missed my flight as well and now will most likely be late to an event as well. I have to wait three more hours for the next flight."
"Well, looks like we'll both be here awhile"
He smiled at her before his eyes went back to his novel.
"To Kill a Mockingbird." Aria spoke.
He looked up at her in confusion.
"What I'm reading." She stated, showing him the book. "What about you?"
"The Great Gatsby." He smiled.
She gave him a simple nod.
"What do you say we take a break and play a little game of truth or dare?"
He scratched the back of his neck nervously.
"I think I'll just stick to reading."
"Are you scared?" She asked, crossing her legs and resting her hand on his forearm.
"Then lets play."
"Ok, you first. Truth or dare?"
He didn't hesitate at all to answer. "Truth."
Aria smirked as she thought of something.
"Weirdest place you've had sex?"
Ezra nearly choked on his spit. Was she really asking that? But then again, it didn't surprise him. She seemed like the girl who would ask that.
"So?" She asked, with a smirk. "Or are you gonna tell me you're a virgin?"
He rolled his eyes."No"
"Weirdest place?" She asked again.
He sighed. "In a porta potty."
"Are you serious?" Aria laughed. "That's so gross."
"I was 18. And you know, hormones." He chuckled.
Aria continued laughing.
"Ok, now you. Truth or dare?" He asked.
"Hm." She thought. "Truth."
"Stupidest thing you've ever done."
"There have been many stupid things I've done."
"Taking a train to Philadelphia on my own when I was 13. I remember I was so upset at my parents I ran away. It was the scariest thing I've ever been through, nearly ended up dead." She laughed. "I was grounded for so long."
"I remember running away too. Thinking back, it doesn't make sense how we were so stupid and naive to the world around us. Getting our selves into dangerous situations."
"That's the thing, as a kid, you don't think twice about doing something. You just kind of do it, you know?"
Soon, their little game of truth or dare turned into a comfortable conversation between the two, and allowed them to get to know more about each other. They were so caught up in their game, they hadn't even realized how much time had already gone by.
"Biggest regret?" Aria asked once it was his turn.
He sighed. "Proposing." He simply replied."Almost ruined my life. Good thing I realized it before it was too late."
"Why?" Aria asked, a part of her afraid she was pushing it.
"She just wasn't who I thought she was. Our breakup didn't end well."
"I'm sorry." She simply said.
He smiled. "It's ok. I've been living a happy life since then."
"Ok. My turn." Aria announced.
"Ok. Truth or dare?" He asked.
Neither had chosen dare yet, maybe she'd be the first to try it.
"Dare." She challenged.
"Hm." Ezra thought as he looked around at airport.
He smirked as he looked back at her.
"I dare you to take a selfie with that person over there." He pointed to a sleeping woman.
"Are you crazy?" She shot back. "You know how weird that'd be."
He laughed. "I knew it." He smirked. "You're too scared."
"I am not!" She argued back.
She got up from her seat, glaring at him as she looked back.
"I'll show you."
She made her way over to the sleeping lady, crouched down beside her and snapped a picture of them. People around her shot her looks and glares, but she obviously didn't care.
"Here." She handed him her phone. " Happy?" She sat back.
Ezra laughed. "I can't believe you just did that."
She joined him in on the laughter. "Me either."
"What time is it?" Aria asked, once their laughter had died.
"Wow. Time really did go by fast."
"Thanks to me." He smirked.
"Ok, Mr. Cocky." She laughed. "Though I must admit, you're more interesting than I thought you'd be."
He looked over at her, locking his blue eyes to her hazel ones. His gaze flickered down to her lips before making its way back to her. There was no denying the magnetic pull between them. She could feel his breath hot against her face, causing her heart rate to rapidly increase.
She was killing him with her beauty. "M-my turn." He spoke, his eyes still locked on hers.
Aria nodded as she smiled, leaning towards him.
"I dare you to kiss me." She spoke in a whisper, stopping inches from his face.
His breathing increased as his eyes remained locked on hers.
"I never chose dare." He stated.
She leaned in closer to him, wrapping her arms around his neck.
"I'm not giving you a choice." She whispered huskily and within seconds, her lips were on his.
Soft, tender, and passionate.
She felt those same butterflies once again, this time more so than before.
Soon, Ezra deepened the kiss, bringing her face closer to his while running his tongue along her bottom lip, begging for entrance. Aria smirked before parting her lips for him.
Minutes later, they both pulled back, panting and desperately trying to catch their breath.
"Damn." Ezra mumbled, before reattaching their lips in a chaste kiss.
"Damn, indeed." She giggled as she ran her small fingers through his curly hair.
He rested his forehead against hers, both still trying to recover from their recent kiss.
Just as they were about to go in for another kiss, they were interrupted by the loud speaker.
Flight 234 to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania will begin boarding shortly.
Aria and Ezra stood up, gathering their belongings along the way.
Group One, you may now board. Group One, you may now board the aircraft." The loudspeaker crackled next to them.
"What group are you in?" Ezra asked as he threw his messenger bag over his shoulder.
Aria glanced down at her ticket. "Group three."
"Me too." He replied. "Seat?"
"12A." She stated. "You?"
He smiled. "12B"
Aria moved closer to him, decreasing the space between them.
"Well then, guess you're stuck with me for another five hours." Aria smirked.
He smiled. "I guess I am."
